Christian Doidge has admitted that he wasn't too surprised when his transfer to Bolton Wanderers collapsed. 

The striker returned to Forest Green back in January after the Championship side were placed into a registration embargo and failed to complete the deal. 

Doidge scored a brace as Rovers beat Crawley Town on Saturday to keep them in the play-off spots.

Bolton have had numerous off-field difficulties this season and with all that was going on, Doidge sensed that it was all going to unravel. 

"I always knew something was going to happen," he said. "The day that it happened it was like, 'I've been waiting for this to happen,' because obviously behind the scenes at Bolton they're not in a very good position and the boys talk in the changing room and it was kind of something I was expecting. 

"I've just got to move on now and concentrate on Forest Green because I love it here, It's the club I've had my best experiences with and I'm hoping for many more."

Doidge also revealed he has found it difficult to adjust to life back at Forest Green after the collapse and also explained how he's had to get used to playing the Forest Green way - a totally different style to what he was playing under Phil Parkinson up in Lancashire. 

That was also something he had to get used to but he felt he was making good progress in the second tier in the weeks before he left which made having to return to the New Lawn even harder for him which may have affected some of his early performances at Rovers. 

"It wasn't that my head wasn't on it but it's hard. I got a move to the Championship and then you're back in League Two. My last game was against Stoke City who had just come down from the Premier League so that's difficult. 

"I was someone who played in Welsh Division Two about six years ago with no linesman and then I'm playing in the Championship with Bolton.

"The gaffer at Bolton played a little bit different, so it took a while for me to adjust the style of football at Bolton but I started the last seven games there so I was starting to make some progress. Obviously to come back to Forest green it's a complete change of styles again.

"I've got some great people, my mom and dad, friends and all friends at home and all the boys at Forest Green have been terrific with me. The manager and the chairman, I sat down with both of them and the gaffer and all they've been is supportive and they want me to get back to my best where i got the opportunity to play at a higher level."

Despite four months away, Doidge is now Forest Green's leading scorer after his brace at Crawley took him to 11 for Rovers (12 including his one goal for Bolton) and ahead of Reece Brown but Doidge is glad to be back leading the list and hopes his goals can help achieve promotion. 

"Browny has been giving it the big one about being top goalscorer for a little while but hopefully I can score goals and help us to what we want to achieve because we're an ambitious club and so are the lads."
